Bruce Springsteen is doing his part to help victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma by rush-releasing a new live album from his archives.
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band MusiCares Hurricane Relief Fund is a show from December 8th, 1978 at the Summit in Houston, captured during the Darkness on the Edge of Town tour.
Originally part of the Darkness on the Edge of Town box set, it features the extended intro version of “Prove It All Night,” the rarely performed “Streets of Fire,” and Darkness outtakes “Fire” and “Because the Night.” Also included are “Independence Day,” “Point Blank,” “The Ties That Bind” and “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town.”
Proceeds will benefit the MusiCares Hurricane Relief Fund, which will aid those affected by the recent devastation in Texas and Florida.
